Court Decisions

Federal law – specifically, Section 205 of the E-Government Act of 2002 – requires all federal courts to post text-searchable copies of their non-sealed decisions on their public websites. The presumption is that all of the court’s decisions will be available online unless the court orders otherwise. The Clerk's Office does not have authority to seal the court’s decisions, or to remove them from the court’s website.
